"Overall a great day. It started at 9 am and ended at 2 pm so we could beat the traffic home. The admissions office, faculty, and pretty much everybody was extremely friendly and very proud of being a UM med student. Lunch was fantastic compared with the other schools I interviewed at. The clinical training is superb; my interviewer, even though he wasn't a physician, said that should be the greatest draw of the school of medicine. " Report Response
